We Earn $200,000 and Can’t Save. Help!

It’s Time To Stop Thinking Of Dads As The #2 Parent · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Fatherhood is a blessing, a responsibility and something every man is 100% capable of doing – at least as well as any mom.   Many of us have just enjoyed a Father’s day celebration.

But it wasn’t until President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day in 1966...

New Hampshire Considering Alimony Reform

[ad_1] When you are facing a divorce, one of the aspects that sparks fear is how it will affect your finances long-term.

5 Revealing Signs You’re Being Used By a Man · Divorced Moms

[ad_1]Being used by a man isn’t just about sex. Men will take advantage of women for their money, emotional support, and more.    There’s nothing worse than being used by a man.
